I was talking to some cat last night, and he said something about JavaSynth 
(spelling?) being really great.  I know another person who did a modularized 
version of CSound using Java resources.  My take on the subject is that Java 
is great for some things, but as I believe someone noted on this list, the 
Java honeymoon is over.  I'm personally a fan of C++.  Perhaps a good 
approach would be to do the guts of your app(s) in portable C++, recompiling 
as needed for target platforms, and then do the front end in Java.  Maybe 
this will give you the best of both worlds.
